It’s Christmas!

Actually, I should be looking at this like a birthday present. I spoke to my editor this morning, to let her know where I am and it was a great conversation. Among other things, she told me if I was still planning to hand in my book at the end of June, she was going out of town and wouldn’t get to it until July 9th, so I should might as well hand it in then. It’s this enormous gift of time!! It’s funny, because if I needed more time, she would have just given it to me, but still. It’s a present!! I told her about all the things I’ve uncovered in my research, and it was just so much fun to share that with someone who is excited about what you’re working on. “And then I found out this, and this and this!”

Plus, I had my hair color fixed yesterday. What more can I ask for? (Okay, true love. There’s that. But for now, I’m happy.)

  1. Hi Stacy,
    Happy Birthday Week! Mine was Monday, but I celebrate for a whole week, too. Must be a Gemini thing.
    Just wanted to let you know that I loved THE RESTLESS SLEEP and I enjoy reading your blog.
    Thought you might be interested in reading about my AMERICAN IDOL audition when you need a distraction.
    Have a great rest-of-birthday week!

  2. Tiara, I read your article! That was utterly, utterly, fascinating. Thank you for pointing me to it, it really was great. Wow. You have NERVE. I love that you did that. I went to a cattle-call audition for a Woody Allen film when I was in my early 20’s. There were a lot of similarities there.

    By the way, Nigel Lythgoe is also a judge (and producer, probably) of my other favorite reality TV show, So You Think You Can Dance. In fact, I plan to post about that shortly.
